Safety Equipment

 

HEAD PROTECTION

I. Head protection

Wearing PPE for head protection will help you avoid any harm that may come to you from falling materials or swinging objects. Moreover, the head protectors are designed to protect you from knocking against stationary objects. Some kinds of head protection equipment (e.g. caps and hair nets) can even protect against entanglement or scalping on machinery.

Examples of head protection equipment:

  • Helmets;

  • Hard hats;

  • Bump Caps;

  • Guards;

  • Accessories.

HAND PROTECTION

II. Hand protection

Arms, hands and fingers are often injured and, therefore, it is vital to wear hand protection equipment when it is required. The hand protection equipment can ensure protection against heat, cold, vibrations, burns, cuts by sharp objects, bacteriological risks and chemical contamination.

Examples of hand protection equipment:

  • Work gloves and gauntlets;

  • Wrist cuff arm nets.

Activities requiring hand protection equipment:

  • construction and outdoor work;

  • working with vibrating apparatus;

  • working in hot or cold environments;

  • working with chemicals and hazardous elements;

  • manual handling of abrasive or sharp objects.

EYE & FACE PROTECTION

  • handling hazardous substances.

HEARING PROTECTION

V. Hearing protection

The hearing protection equipment is vital when working in an environment with high-sound levels. The type of hearing protection should not only be suitable for the working environment but also provide a level of hygiene and comfort to the users. A good practice is to provide employees with a range of protectors and then allow them to select the ones which suit them the best.

Examples of hearing protection equipment:

  • Earplugs and defenders;

  • Noise meters;

  • Communications sets;

  • Acoustic foam.
